Aspen Tng — a systems-oriented product designer, currently at Amazon working on design systems and ux design for internal tools.
Hello! I’m Aspen. I’m currently a UX Designer at Amazon, working on internal tools and its respective design system. I’m a systems-oriented designer with a Master’s in Human Computer Interaction + Design from the University of Washington. Previously, I was part of the small and mighty design team that designed Singapore’s nationwide identity app for its 3.5+ million residents.
Born and raised in sunny Singapore, I went through a primarily science-based education, but made a pivot to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Industrial Design at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the United States, which is either corn-filled or in constant sub-zero weather.
My multi-faceted background in both the arts and sciences were pivotal in my journey to becoming a product designer. I intuitively make considerations beyond the screens thanks to my experiences designing both physical and digital products. As a product designer, I find balance between functionality, scalability, aesthetics, and context of usage when creating products and systems.
Outside of work, you can find me bouldering, playing soccer, or hanging out with friends.
Feel free to reach for a chat, or coffee, or a climbing session!
